Curriculum & Learning Opportunities

<Text here if needed>

    By studying Accounting, students acquire the essential technical abilities and critical thinking skills required to be a leader in communicating the language of business. The accounting profession plays a vital role in running a business because it tracks all cash flows within an organization. Accountants ensure businesses meet all regulatory requirements to avoid financial penalties. They create and maintain all financial information that are used in all business decisions. The Winthrop Accounting program flourishes in a small class environment where professors are dedicated to classroom excellence in guiding students through the program to provide a foundation for careers in accounting. The undergraduate degree is the first phase of an integrated program leading to an MBA with an accounting emphasis for those students who desire to pursue an MBA and become a Certified Public Accountant.


    Computer Science is the study of how to efficiently develop software that successfully solves customers' computing problems. It includes learning to write software, analyze algorithms, understand computer hardware, use databases, work with a variety of operating systems, design computer networks, and secure systems and data. The BS in Computer Science degree program at Winthrop focuses on hands-on problem solving and working in small teams. The program is accredited by ABET, the premier accreditor of engineering and technology degree programs. There are many opportunities for students to grow an excellent resume before graduation, including two student computing clubs, participation in regional and local competitions, conducting individual research projects with faculty, and paid internships and part-time jobs. Graduates earn careers with excellent starting salaries.


    Economists work at the forefront of many vital current issues: how to combat poverty and unemployment, how to provide adequate health care, how to protect the environment, even how to reduce crime, reform education, and fight terrorism. Economics is more than a body of knowledge; it is a way of thinking. As a vice president of a mult-ibillion dollar corporation once put it: "Economics teaches us to confront problems, to size them up and to wrestle with creative solutions. And that is what firms hire you to do."


    A Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a concentration in Entrepreneurship will equip our diverse student population with the skills and confidence to start businesses and lead companies. Our unique program prepares students for careers as autonomous entrepreneurs who are innovative, imaginative, and creative.

    Innovative by taking existing systems and ideas and improving them; imagination to see what does not exist, and creativity to execute ideas and make them real.

    The Entrepreneurship program is designed to help students think outside the box, take their entrepreneurial ideas, and transform them into opportunities. 


    Finance is one of the more popular options within the College of Business Administration at Winthrop University.  We offer knowledgeable professors who teach the practical applications of finance concepts in addition to providing a theoretical foundation.  Students also have an opportunity to gain practical experience via internships.  In a number of cases, a student internship has led to a full-time position following graduation.
